Day 43 Paris - Sacre Couer
The famous Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, is in English the "Basilica of the Sacred Heart", and is a Roman Catholic basilica and one of the most popular landmarks in Paris. It is so named in dedication to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city and within a few minutes walk from our apartment residence.
We saw it in 2002 and I drew a sketch of it. Now I have a longer time to take in the majestic building and walk around it and inside.
